Self-guided walking holidays in Andalucia
Hiking in Andalucia is a great way to discover the ‘essence’ of Spain. This passionate region is synonymous with fiestas and siestas, bullfights and flamenco performances. The magnificent Moorish architecture of Seville, Granada and Cordoba is deservedly world-famous, but the rural landscape of Andalucía is equally breathtaking and its national parks offer wonderful hiking opportunities.
Andalucia is home to Spain’s highest mountain range: the snow-capped Sierra Nevada. Here, you can follow ancient hiking trails between the characteristic whitewashed villages of the Alpujarras. Further west, The Sierra de Grazalema National Park offers excellent hiking among rugged limestone peaks and gorges on the way to the jaw-dropping clifftop town of Ronda. In the east, in Almería province, you can walk on wild coastal paths as you explore the unspoilt beaches and desert-like landscapes of the Cabo de Gata.
Andalucia’s Natural Parks enjoy generally mild winter, spring and autumn weather so walking can be enjoyable at any time from mid-September through to mid-June.
